The name isn’t just for show
At Real Learning we believe…

In keeping it REAL.
Partnering with you, we create training solutions that work for your business - and get you real results. Over 15 years of working with NZ’s top businesses has crafted an approach that drives real behavioural change.

We make sure that learning is directly linked to your business objectives. We tell your stories, use your language and use video examples from your business.


We use digital solutions made for your business. Designed for easy reference, we create online learning modules with reinforcement videos, tailored to your needs. Whether it be out in the field, or in the office - our solutions have you covered.


We start the learning journey by helping you get your head in the game. Focus, resilience and a strong mindset are all critical to make learning a part of what you do, everyday.


The best learning is initiated by the learner. We provide online tools that ensure training is available - when you need it.  Proven change-management principles are used to provide your leaders with the systems needed to drive new behaviours.

We believe in keeping it real in our delivery too...

We know you don’t want your team out of the office for days on end so we customise our delivery using a mixture of short, sharp face to face learning sessions, micro learning and online performance support tools to use in the field.
